Traffic accident or man slaughter? Forensic traces interpretation in a specific case

Abstract: During the year 2003, on the edge of a vilage in Caraş-Severin County, in the immediate vicinity of a national road, a violent event occurred, resulting in the death of the victim M.P. The original investigation – focused on a supposed traffic accident – was not confirmed, so a forensic examination of the traces was required to confirm or deny the implied version. The interpretation of the traces revealed the nature of the violence that led to the death of the victim and detailed the events preceding the death of the victim.
